All weekday breakfasts should be quick and healthy!
Trying a new keto breakfast recipe is always exciting. Anytime you can add something interesting and delicious to your morning routine is an opportunity you should take! This tasty recipe for a spicy shrimp omelette is the perfect example of how you can make your breakfast new, tasty and completely low carb. It is a recipe that you absolutely must try!
This quick and healthy keto breakfast idea came to us when our extra shrimp from the night before were laying sadly in a container just waiting to be eaten. The night before, we made Keto Spicy Shrimp Scampi which was delicious but had made a little more shrimp than we could eat. Of course, we could have just reheated the shrimp and had it for lunch later on but after enjoying that yummy dish the nigt before, we were already craving more spicy shrimp at breakfast!
Our omelet was in the works already as we both love to have eggs in the morning (what keto follower doesn’t?!) but we threw those extra shrimps in before the eggs were totally cooked. The result was fantastic! Not only was this the perfect way to use some extra shrimp but it was also a total switch in our morning routine. It isn’t often that we have shrimp at breakfast!

One thing that is great about shrimp is that is cooks quickly. While we already had some cooked shrimp on hand from our dinner the night before, you can easily cook a few seasoned shrimp in about 5 minutes. Just toss the shrimp in the spices and throw them into a heated pan. When they turn nice and pink, they are done!
Add as many spices as you like to your shrimp, making them as herby or as spicy as you’d like. Shrimp love cayenne and paprika and that is what we have used to make this omelet extra flavorful. If you want your shrimp to have even more kick, add a little more cayenne. You can even splash a little hot sauce on top of the omelet after it has cooked for even more heat.
Omelets are super versatile and there are lots of ways to customize them to suit your personal preferences. They are also a great way to use up last night’s dinner (just like we did with the shrimp!). If you have some cooked keto veggies, toss them in your omelet. Got some extra shredded chicken? Into the omelette it goes! And, when you make some spicy shrimp the night before…you guessed it- omelet! Your breakfast will be flavorful, exciting and completely low carb! Enjoy.

Here’s a quick healthy breakfast idea:
- 10 large shrimp
- 6 eggs
- 4 grape tomatoes
- 1 handful spinach
- 1/4 onion
- 1 tbsp sriracha salt
- 1 sprig parsley
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- Chop up some onion and slice the grape tomatoes in half lengthwise.
- Fire up a pan to medium heat and throw on the onions and some salt to cook. At the same time, place the grape tomatoes cut side down to roast a little.
- When the onions are translucent throw in your spinach and let it wilt and shrink enough for some shrimp to fit in.
- Throw in the shrimp and move on to the eggs!
- Here you have some flexibility: you can make a scramble (on low heat and stirring very often), or you can whisk the eggs in the bowl and pour it over to make a regular omelette. We decided to make a sunny side up omelette. You can also choose to crack the yolks after they’re on the shrimp and spinach so you’ve got two layers of egg, making a nice marbled omelette.
- To make the eggs our way, crack each one leaving room for all 6, or however many you’re using. Then take a wooden spoon and jiggle the whites around so they grab everything underneath them a little better.
- Put a lid on your pan so the top of your omelette cooks as well. We left ours on the fire for about 6-8 minutes. Watch you eggs, once a thin film of white is covering the yolks, it’s ready. If you like your eggs less runny, cook it for a little longer than that.
- When the omelette is done, run a knife across each yolk and let it ooze onto the entire omelette, adding new, yummy textures! Garnish with some parsley and enjoy!
